Isabel Allende Tells Tales of Passion

Categories // TED Talks (Individual)

isabel allende 11This spellbinding 2007 TED Talk by world-renowned writer and feminist Isabel Allende alternately made me laugh, cry, and reflect.

So much of what she says revolves around themes that I’ve recently been exploring in my own life. It truly resonated with me, as I hope it will with you.

22 Amazing Women Make Mainstage History at TED 2014

Categories // TED Talks (Individual)

TED 2014 logoOne third of the speakers on the TED 2014 main stage will be women. An additional 16 will participate in the "All Star" sessions, which again represents about one third of the sessions' speakers.

I believe stages everywhere (including those at TED and TEDx conferences) should reflect the ratio of women to men in the world's population (i.e. about 50:50).
